During this period, the indigenous children of the San Andrés de Sotavento and Tuchín councils in the department of Córdoba, more than 500 miles NW Bogotá, have strengthened training and radio production.
Despite the pandemic, they have been producing programs for the San Andrés indigenous radio station on child rights, environmental protection, social minority rights and gender equality.
Likewise, with the help of CEPALC, they are creating the first mobile library in the region, taking advantage of the reading and knowledge thirst that has been awakened among children and youth councils, especially residents of Cruz Chiquita, Cruz Guayabo, Calle Larga, Gardenias communities.
New youth leadership is emerging in these communities. These young people are leading small businesses that generate economic income such as raising chickens, home gardens, textiles, and in other areas they are promoting radio production collectives, theater and music collectives.
